Chollas Creek Restoration Project



Doing Our part!

Community Service Institute

The Green Team is all about helping Chollas Creek by keeping it clean and planting more native Californian plants.

Our goal for King Chavez High School and partnering schools is to get the creek clean each semester through work projects every week.

Through community service, cleaning the creek is so much fun because you never know what you will find, from a walking stick to a birds nest. By cleaning the creek we are not just helping the creek, we are also helping other living creatures and restoring the environment to it's natural state.

In order to make this work, it is important for everyone to reduce litter. We don't want more pollution and destruction of the environment.



Help Us Restore the Future:


You can make a difference by doing the following things...

  • Pick up trash
  • Recycle
  • Conserve Water
  • Volunteer!

We are also taking out invasive species of plants. One of those plants is the Arundo. We also plant, water and maintain native plants in the creek.

The Creek is very important to the Y and to everyone else!
